Every September when school supplies go on sale and the media begin covering the changing of the seasons in other parts of the country, I sit in my shorts and flip flops and dream about the one perfect pair of Fall boots. Next to the slingback, boots have my heart in the world of footwear. If I were a shoe designer, I’d specialize in boots. Now, granted the leaves won’t really change colors so dramatically and we’ll probably still wear our flip flops with our “winter” clothes well into December here in LA, this first month of the last quarter of the year just gets me in the mood for some boots hunting.
And this year, I actually happened along this Chanel pair while waiting for a friend of mine to meet me for lunch.
My first thought was, hmmm, gaucho boots. Perfect for walking around the Argentinian pampas! Cute concept but perhaps a bit mad once on the legs?
When my lunch date, S, arrived, we discussed the boots. They’re a big investment, so we discussed some more. We even went to try them on in black at another boutique. Funny, but in black lambskin they look totally different, more equestrian and less cowboy. S knew I was falling for the cowboy so we visualized some outfits with a few of my bags…and now that the boots are here, these photos are for her:
Actually, I think these boots would look really nice over a faded pair of skinny blue jeans, extra starched white shirt, man’s gold watch, and a Balenciaga Day bag. These boots scream for a slouchy bag–if only I had one in the same color as the boots… 😀
